we keep hearing about projects like mentioned by Kush

organisations. But these are isolated cases. what is slowing down the impact
of open source in e-governance especially, is the lack of coordination and
sharing of knowledge. Its ironic actually. to some extent there is
coordiantion, but then why arent successful projects shared or talked about
in forums like this one? will someone from Pune LUG tell us what they have
done for e-governance? Likewise will someone from Bangalore LUG share their
knowledge with Delhi LUG?
There have been attempts like the little league
I am not implying that there is no sharing at all,
there is, however, how many of them are working on e-governance projects?
there is nothing to quantify this fact.
Point is that vaious groups tend to go thru the same cycle of planning and
working out an e-governance project which can be just cloned and enhanced or
modified for customised use.
While Indian developer community is being noticed and praised for its work,
there is still a big void of contribution to the public sector. And this is
not just my opinion, but the feeling of most leading companies who are
continually encouraging student community, and asking for more public sector
We would like to know why?
